Sharing Gratitude and Creating Something Bigger Than Ourselves

2 comments

Hi, internet!

As I have taken a step back from the daily posts, I have given time and thought to what my next Gratitude project will be. One of the most powerful lessons I learned during my 365 Days Of Gratitude was that Gratitude is meant to be shared. It is important to have Gratitude for yourself and for your process but others deserve to hear the same. A handwritten note or a big ol’ hug can go a long way for a friend or mentor.

I love the idea of paying it forward and I hope to inspire the same with Gratitude. Below you will find The Gratitude Wall. A digital wall to share, post, create, draw, and design.

Made with Padlet

I have been inspired by those before me who have created colorful, thoughtful, spaces for people to show their love and appreciation. In today’s digital age, this wall can grow beyond the confines and access of a single space. We have the opportunity to share gratitude across the globe in so many different ways. I’m hoping you will join me in this venture. Post on the wall and share it with a friend. Encourage them to do the same and we can create a chain reaction of Gratitude.

I have aspirations of changing the world but something like that does not just happen overnight and it’s not something I can do alone. Change starts in ourselves, it extends to our communities and environments and continues on to shape the lives of others. The best part is, we have the power to start today. Sign the wall and post something of your own.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
